It lays down the groundwork literally , but without an instructor, there'll be many gaps in instruction to fill. Unlike many of the other documented skills in the Army, combatives is not something you can just read in a book — the actual FM isn't any help either. Combatives is a very aerobic activity that requires nearly every muscle in the body.
Stretching is important before and after any exercise, yet the manual only covers five stretches and only one is not buddy-assisted.
The point of stretching is to loosen up your muscles, not immediately throw out your back. Any sudden movements out of this one and you're done. Source: FM A flaw in the "buddy-assisted" stretches is that the person assisting has no knowledge of what is helpful and what is hurting. They could push the stretcher to the point of injury or they could just do nothing at all. Not only is the risk of injury higher, it takes time away from what could be used stretching both combatants.

However, much of this relies on your opponent giving you stiff arms where the elbow is locked straight. In a controlled environment, it's not a problem.
In reality, fists fly too fast for you to grab them. Stepping into level-2 doesn't make you any more of a badass. You'll still cover the same techniques, with maybe three or four new moves spliced in. In this position, the person on the ground is in complete control. The problem with the North-South Position is that this an extremely ineffective hold. The only applicable time for this is when a troop has watched too much WWE and is going for the Batista Bomb.
These are your finishing moves. During combatives level-1, almost no focus is put onto these One crucial step is missing from the illustration: Applying the force needed to the enemy's fourth point of contact and lifting from their ankles.
